Dear Students,

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult and uncertain time. We know this is stressful and is compounded by all of the changes that appear to be occurring daily.

For AAS & BS Students: The academic advisors in the College of Health Student Success Center will be conducting advising appointments via zoom or telephone while social distancing guidance is in place. Students can continue to schedule appointments in the same way they have by calling the main line at 907-786-1318 or emailing

Information Sessions have also been moved to an online format:

Kodiak: Nov 12 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm, & Dec 10 - 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

For Other Issues: The School of Nursing's main office and HSB are affected by the the "Hunker Down" order. Access to campus buildings are restricted. Employees and students present for essential campus operations or specified academic reasons may access buildings using keys or WolfCards. Please email questions or concerns to the appropriate faculty or staff. They will be available by email during regular business hours. As we receive updated information, the changes will be filtered through course instructors so please check your Blackboard Announcements and email accounts regularly.

Thank you and keep safe and well, 
UAA School of Nursing and College of Health Student Success Center
